Bag Packing Saturday 22nd December

On the 22nd of December we will be Bag Packing at Waitrose to raise money for the Squadron.
This is our main fundraising activity of the year and will be looking for as much support from cadets as possible. We would like to see a good turn out of cadets to cover from 9am to 5pm. The intention is too organise a series of shifts so that cadets do not have to cover the whole day and can have breaks during their shift.
Uniform will be Working Blues

Poppy Appeal 2018

Today the cadets helped out the Royal British Legion by collecting for the Poppy Appeal in Sainsbury's Supermarket in Portishead


Thanks to all the cadets and staff who helped

Remembrance Sunday 11th November

It's a very special year. 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and the creation of our parent service the Royal Air Force.

This is our biggest parade of the year and it’s important that as many cadets as possible attend.

We will meet at 0930 hrs on Stoke Road.
The parade will march off at 1020 hrs and head along the High Street to St Peter’s Church for the Remembrance Service (some coins for the collection for charity would be good).
After the service the Royal British Legion will host a gathering at Clarence House (with a buffet) to which cadets are invited.

Uniform will be wedgewood (light) blue shirts with jumpers & ties. Acquire yourself a paper poppy (not crumpled) and a pin to attach it.

If you haven’t been issued a black tie and can’t borrow one (any plain black tie is acceptable) then as a fall back wear a working (dark) blue shirt.

For those cadets we have not been able to issue with uniform yet then school uniform is acceptable but make sure it is clean & presentable.

Black footwear for everybody (and give them a polish).

The parade is also a great opportunity for parents & family to see the cadets out in public.

For those cadets who feel 1 parade is not enough there is Clevedon (1446) Squadron’s parade in the afternoon.

Squadron Induction Evening 17th September

The Squadron will be holding an induction evening for new recruits on the 17th of September. The evening will be at the Squadron HQ on Station Road, Portishead and will commence at 1930 Hours.

New recruits are to arrive from 1930 hrs with a parent/guardian to fill out a form (or two). Parents/guardians are then free to leave and collect at 2130 hrs. No specific clothing required but something practical is suggested.

We are open to children from School Year 8 up to 17 years old.
